London skyline....

Today I had a project meeting in Central London. To get to it, I had to walk from the tube station over the Thames. Just want to share with your the beautiful view. I enjoyed it so much that I just had to take a picture :-)

Prove that I have a brain...

I just had my first digital MRI done. Very nice! Instead if a pile of images, you get one small CD. Very useful. And it is amazing to look through all the images at home on my monitor.

A beautiful weekend in London with surprises....

John and I had a great weekend .
We started out at the Royal Albert Hall listening to Filmharmonic concert. Classical pieces from movies were played, like Mission Impossible, Superman, Harry Potter and many more. Was amazing!!!
Before the concert started we were able to take a picture of the three London icons: Royal Albert Hall, and in front of it double-decker bus and a typical London taxi cab.

On Saturday we met Sophie, John and Sacha in the Hyde Park and used the beautiful weather to play some soccer with Sacha. Later we drove on to Ealing where we had a nice lunch. This was full of suprises as a thunderstorm hit us there. We had to take a taxi cab nack to our home as it was raining so strongly. But it lasted not very long and the sun came out soon again.

On Sunday John and I got up early (for us on a Sunday) to watch the changing of the guards at the Buckingham Palace.
There were lots of people already and we had luck to get a place in the front. It is not even the tourist season yet. Can you imagine how it will be in the summer....

It was a big Surprise when we saw those guards walking up :-) We asked a bobby where they are from. His answer with a smile on his face: "we ran low on guards, so these are from Malasya to help out". As Malasya being a former crown colonie from the UK, they were the guards this time :-)
From ceremomy at the Bukingham Palace we went on to do Big Bus Company's tour of London. Very interesting and we had a good tour guide. In the price of the ticket is also that you can take the boat on the Themse. So we changed from the bus to a boat and then back again in the bus. If you know the Board Game "Mister X", that is how we felt :-)

The pictutre below shows John at one of our stops when he is holding the London Eye :-)

A walk in the summer in London

Summer is here :-)
John and I went for a long walk through some of Londons parks (Holland Park, Hyde Park) and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
The British really love their dogs and provide toilets for them :-)
